    Bin Laden Dead

    Bin Laden Dead

    Multiple news reports state that Obama will announced that Osama bin Laden is dead and the U.S. has the body.

    To be updated when the details are announced.

    This is a time of joy.

    Comments are open.

    Updates:  Obama gave his statement (my paraphrase):   U.S. killed bin Laden.  Week ago confirmed actionable intelligence.  Operation was today by U.S. forces on the ground.  After firefight killed bin Laden, and took custody of his body.  Pakistan cooperation “helped lead us to bin Laden.”

    Further thoughts:  Not really a lot of detail revealed.  If we had “cooperation” of Pakistan it either was because the intelligence was so precise that Pakistan could not say no or warn him off, or the Pakistanis fed us the intelligence because they no longer needed to protect bin Laden or wanted something in exchange.

    There will be plenty of people who will want to play politics with this and, as is happening widely on Twitter, are bragging that George Bush could not get bin Laden.  Tonight is not the time to respond to those who do such things.

    This has been a long time coming, and enormous efforts and thousands of lives were lost.  That’s what we should remember.

    Being in the NYPD and responding to 9/11 and seeing firsthand the mayhem caused by UBL, today is a joyous occasion.

    I told my daughters, never to forget today. A monster has been removed from this earth.

    Very nice.

    In the meantime, is everybody forgetting history? It's much easier to fund a war with an uncatchable boogeyman.

    Great news. The world can FINALLY know that the hunt for Osama bin Laden is over: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

    I agree with @Cowboy, and have the same sentiments as @rj, although I can't sanction it, being a Christian. I just believe we need to treat others the way we want them to treat us.

    But my gut still sees the burned bodies of tortured Americans hung upside down on a bridge…..and the Twin Towers exploding, then crumbling……and the WTC bombing victims bleeding, crying….and I'll never forget reading a first-person account of a 9/11 NYC survivor describing the thuds from bodies hitting the concrete as he was trying to get out of the Twin Towers (he was on the lower level at the time).

    Justice is served. Thank G-d for Navy SEALS, for our Joint SOF who carried out the successful mission.

    May G-d bless and protect the USA, and all our allies. Ever vigilant.

    It's possible the body was banged up, so they had to ask the CIA for a sample of his DNA just to be sure it was him. I'm happy he was defeated, and may all enemies of our great land fall as well.

    Not a teleprompter blip, the word is that it's so deliciously ironic that bin Laden would be killed on the 8-year anniversary of Bush's "mission accomplished" thingy. Anyone really think that's a coincidence?
